Gonda: Three minor dalit sisters suffered serious burn injuries after an unidentified person threw acid on them in Uttar Pradesh’s Gonda district on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at around 2 am and all the three sisters – aged 8, 12 and 17 – were sleeping in their room.

As per reports, the attacker allegedly entered their home from the terrace and threw acid on them.

On hearing their cries, their father rushed to their room to see that they were attacked with acid. The attacker had escaped by then.

The oldest sister has 30 per cent burn injuries and middle sister who is 12, has 20 per cent burns. The youngest has five to seven per cent burns. They have been admitted to a government hospital in Gonda.

“The oldest girl who has the maximum burns, her wedding was fixed. The wedding was about to take place soon. Her face has been burnt because of the acid. Now I don’t know how the wedding will happen,” their father said.

Currently, a forensic team with a dog squad of the police are searching the area.

“The family has not named any suspects who may have thrown the acid. Hence, the investigation is being done based on a complaint against unknown persons. However, we suspect that a known person has a role in this,” said senior police officer Shailendra Kumar Pandey.
